The printing department of the Perkins Institute had been producing tactile books since the 1840's and had always struggled for funding. Michael Anagnos, who was determined to make it self-sustaining, raised $100,000 endowment for the printing department, and renamed it Howe Memorial Press as a tribute to his father-in-law Samuel Gridley Howe, who was Perkins' first director and Julia's father. In the 1880's Howe Memorial Press began producing books in American Braille as well as in the embossed alphabet Boston Line Type system, as developed by Samuel G. Howe.--Barter Books, Alnwick Station, Northumberland, NE66 2NP, England, www.barterbooks.co.uk, 4/3/2007.
